Hey man, when are you gonna do a test with the Abus Granit Extreme Plus 59 Lock-Chain 12mm??? lookin forward to see that…

JDB says:

Hi from the uk here great channel and thanks for testing these chains, the Almax and pragmasis chains look similar but they have differences the Almax is case hardened and the pragmasis is through hardened so would be great if you could test and compare both if you manage to get hold of a Almax in the us. I bought the Almax 16mm first as I could not get hold of the pewag in the uk I have since found a supplier for pewag in the uk so have both now and the pewag is so much better for carrying on my motorbike. Using a cisa shutter lock at the moment what do think of shutter padlocks? Thanks

Kevin Santiago says:

Wayne, two questions here…
First, was difference in time to cut through this chain & the Pewag 3012 significant? And second, what Padlock would you recommend for this Pragmasis 16mm chain? Originally, before watching this video you convinced me on going with the 12mm Pewag 7/16” 3012 along w/ that Stanley Padlock w/ custom ASSA ABLOY key lock you have on your site. But now, like you stated on this video…The more steel there is to cut, the longer it will take to cut through w/ a grinder. Looking forward to your reply, thanks!

Gilera runner says:

Pragmasis chains are the best chains money can buy, they are a serious bit of kit……

Willy Bee says:

What kind of machinery do you have to run the bolt cutters?

Alex says:

fantastic . many thanks

Todd Edelman says:

This will soon be my transport – i.e. not recreation or sport – bicycle security set up:
+ An anti-theft nut for the front wheel, one on each side, as it’s not QR;
+ The shortest chain possible, as it will allow me to use a thicker and thus more theft-resistant chain*;
+ A suitable shrouded lock for that chain (so there’s a tight fit);
+ A ring lock for the rear wheel – this is standard on e.g. Dutch city bikes. It functions as a low-security immobilizer when you just need to lock up for a second, like at an ice cream truck with a big crowd of kids in front, or of course a taco truck — either so your bike isn’t in the way and so your hands can be free.

*In other words, something with no further reach than a mini u-lock. The UK stockist for the Pragmasis sells individual links, two links and three links together. (The USA stockist doesn’t show this on its website… but perhaps it’s possible to get one…) It’s possible that with a pad lock the three links can be enough. What? What’s needed to make this work is well-designed
bicycle rack! Fight for your city to get something like this:

Joshua Osman says:

How’s that Milwaukee grinder going looking into buying one

Willy Bee says:

Good job,,, but will anything resist being frozen with Liquid Nitrogen?

Thomas Rainbird says:

so what chain can be angle grinder resistant n bolt proof etc that’s what I need Wayne

Willy Bee says:

Oops .. now I see..How much , if any, would you gain in mechanical advantage by using a grease gun to pump into a cylinder?
